After a successful bauma Munich show despite a looming recession, what is your prediction for the show in a country like India, which has become the third-largest construction industry in the world?

India is well on its way towards becoming the world’s second-largest construction equipment market and the manufacturing hub of the world. Construction equipment sales in the second quarter of this fiscal year showed an 8 percent year-over-year growth with healthy performance on the export front as well. As one of the leading trade fair organisers in the country with experience in multiple industries, we can see growing interest from global OEMs to manufacture and source from India. bauma 2022 in Munich was a phenomenal success with active participation at the Indian Pavilion, and we are confident of expanding this interest and engagement at bauma CONEXPO India 2023.

India’s vibrant infrastructural development landscape offers global manufacturers an opportunity to convert relationships into real business. With over $1 trillion in infrastructure investments pledged in India over the next five years, there is no better platform for companies to hedge their bets against global inflationary pressures than bauma CONEXPO India 2023.

What are preparations underway for bauma Conexpo India 2023? Please give the number of indoor exhibition halls and outdoor display spaces planned.

During our show days, January 31-February 3, 2023, we took over the entire India Expo Mart Centre in Greater Noida. At this edition, we will exceed all expectations and provide a seamless experience for all stakeholders. We have earned the industry’s trust and credibility in previous editions by curating well-planned exhibition spaces, including curated conferences, buyer-seller meetings, and live-action demo areas. North India is today’s epicentre of infrastructural development, so all our stakeholders are excited about our venue at the India Expo Centre in Greater Noida. This space offers easy connectivity by road and metro and parking for about 4000 cars and 30 trucks/buses. We are confident that all these facilities, combined with our meticulous planning, will ensure a memorable and meaningful experience for exhibitors and buyers.

Which new green products and equipment would visitors expect to see at the show?

The construction and infrastructure development industry are particularly enthusiastic about electric vehicles and machinery, both for emissions control and operational cost reduction through the substitution of fossil fuel dependence. Hence, we will see a broad portfolio of electric solutions at our show at the exhibitor stalls and the demo areas.

What kind of leverage will bauma Conexpo India 2023 give the growing CE rental industry?

With increasing business for rental companies through aggressive infra-development plans across the country, our show offers them the right platform to showcase their advantages and express their concerns regarding high-value projects.
